Are genetically modified foods, bovine growth hormones (rBGH), antibiotics and high fructose corn syrup making you fat and sick?

According to CDC report, more than one third of the US population (about 34%) are obese and about 68% are overweight. Childhood obesity is now a growing epidemic and one in three kids born after the year 2000 are either obese or overweight. Medical bills related to obesity have grown more rapidly than ever and they are expected to soar even more as the obesity rate increases. Although No one disagrees that genetic is an important factor in weight gain, in the last few decades the extraordinary increase in body fat of the American population makes you wonder if genetics are the only factor in play ... genetically-modified-foods-bovine-growth-hormones-antibiotics-high-fructose-corn-syrup-making-you-fat-sick

The gene of genetically modified foods can be transferred into human blood/DNA researchers say

A recent study published by Public Library of Science (PLOS), researchers have discovered compelling evidence that the DNA of genetically modified foods could enter human’s blood circulation and result in many health problems. According to researchers, the blood samples of more than 1000 participants were collected and “the results indicated that meal-derived DNA fragments (which were large enough to carry complete genes) can avoid degradation and through an unknown mechanism enter the human circulation system” ... gene-of-genetically-modified-foods-can-be-transferred-into-human-blood-DNA

Eating organic foods can reduce the level of pesticides by 89% researchers say

According to a study published in the Journal of Environmental Research, participants who ate 80% organic diet had 89% less pesticide residue in their urine compared to those who ate conventionally grown food. The study was performed in Melbourne, Australia with non-smoking participants aged between 18 and 65. In this study, the pesticide level in the urine of those who ate conventionally grown food is a representative of pesticide levels in the urine of millions of people who eat foods laced with high levels of pesticides and GMOs ...eating-organic-foods-can-dramatically-reduce-pesticide-levels

If you love your privacy or are concerned about identity theft then you would be shocked to find out how your information is stored and used, if you want to have access to healthcare. Unfortunately, the U.S. Congress has made sure that you have no choice but to submit ALL your private information to Uncle Sam, in order to have access to healthcare. Just when you thought NSA data collection was intrusive, abuse of power, and without oversight, here comes ‘the Obamacare’ which is gathering YOUR private and personal information (completely unrelated to healthcare or health services) and storing it for all their use and abuse ...

What causes tingling, prickling, lack of sensation, pain, muscle weakness and numbness in hands, feet or other parts of the body?

Damage to the nerves connecting your spinal cord and brain to other parts of your body causes symptoms such as tingling and numbness, lack of sensation, pain, and muscle weakness that begins in the hands or feet and may spread through the limbs. In essence, this is due to pressure on nerves or the blood vessels that supply the nerves. Sometimes this occurs after you've been in an awkward position, like sitting cross-legged, or sitting on a chair (office or on an airplane) for long hours, or wearing tight shoes, or may be the sign of a trapped nerve as a result of slipped disc or back problem putting pressure on a nerve that travels from your back, down your leg and into your toes ... what-causes-tingling-prickling-lack-of-sensation-pain-muscle-weakness-numbness-in-hands-feet-other-parts-of-the-body

Ebola: Virus whose very name strikes fear in every nation on earth

Ebola is indeed a rare and deadly virus caused by infection with a strain of Ebola virus, among the strains, the Zaire strain is known to be the deadliest. It was first recorded some 50 years ago although there are some disputes that suggest the virus had been detected many decades ago, may be even more than 100+ years ago. In the United States, a public-health horror incident shook up the authorities when they expected an outbreak of this wildly deadly virus near the nation's capital city, Washington D.C. back in 1989. During this incident, multiple people tested positive and the authorities had no idea how to contain nor how to treat such a deadly virus ... ebola-epidemic-ebola-spreading-in-US

Now FDA says its own research shows that the arsenic added to the chicken feed, ends up in the chicken meat itself where it is consumed by humans, hence causing cancer among the population. FDA now suggests that arsenic is a carcinogen and causes cancer and other illnesses ... Seattle Restaurants
